The Twin City Harmonizers is the name of the performing chorus of the Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, the world’s largest all-male singing society with members throughout the United States and Canada and affiliates worldwide.
Our mission is to provide opportunities and encouragement to men of all ages to sing a cappella, four-part close harmony in the barbershop style, and to perform publicly for lifelong enjoyment and enrichment of ourselves, our audiences, and those we serve.
Chartered in 1946, our chapter is one of 31 in the Ontario District and meets weekly for two 2 ½ hours to learn and improve our singing. We perform regularly, without instrumental accompaniment, in competitions, shows, civic and community events, locally and throughout Ontario and have staged an annual show and every year since 1949.
The chorus has won the Ontario District championship 6 times and represented the District at the International competition in 1978. In 2008 the Twin City Harmonizers won Canada’s nationwide CBC Hockey Night In Canada Hockey Song Challenge, a popular and well-known Canadian song written by “Stompin” Tom Connors.
